by NW Spotlight
A July 2015 poll conducted by Clout Research found that conservatives outnumber liberals in Oregon. Poll respondents identified as conservatives 37% of the time, as liberals 35% of the time and as moderate 28% of the time.
786 Oregon likely voters statewide were surveyed – 41% said they were registered as Democrats and 33% said they were registered as Republicans.
The same poll found that more Oregonians have a favorable opinion of the Republican Party of Oregon than an unfavorable opinion. 45.9% had a favorable opinion and 44.0% had an unfavorable opinion.
Favorability was slightly less for the Democratic Party of Oregon, with only a difference of .4% between favorable and unfavorable: 45.8% favorable versus 45.4% unfavorable.
The poll was circulated by the Independent Party of Oregon in a press release yesterday.
